This is absolutely devastating. Larger than life ‘Mob Wives’ personality Angela ‘Big Ang’ Raiola’s lung and brain cancer has progressed to stage 4, leaving the star hospitalized. Here’s what we know.
Just over a month after Angela “Big Ang” Raiola’s cancer returned, it has progressed to stage 4 and is “serious” according to a report. The 55-year-old Mob Wives star is now hospitalized and trying everything to help improve her condition. We have all the dismal details right here.
Poor Big Ang! She got the devastating news that her cancer was back in Dec., and it has only gotten worse since then. She told RadarOnline on Feb. 3 “I’m in the hospital,” while another source said “It’s serious. She isn’t doing well right now.”
Just one day prior, Ang’s sister Janine Detore made a GoFundMe page that explains Ang’s current situation. “My sister was diagnosed with stage 4 brain and lung cancer,” she explained. She admits that the chemotherapy Ang started on Jan. 5 was a failure. “On January 26th the doctor reviewed her CT scan and informed us that the treatment was not working, and in fact one tumor grew larger and the other tumors had no change.”
“We were advised that she would start immunotherapy the following week,” she continued, but before she got the chance, things had progressed to be much worse. “Well here we are at the emergency room waiting to see why her breathing is labored and the amount of pain she is having is by far more than she could handle.”
Now, they are trying marijuana as an alternative option and last resort. “I suggested cannabis oil as an alternative. This is why I am putting up this go fund me to try to help my sister to get this oil to help her at least be pain free. Angela cannot function to work anymore. I’m not sure that it will work but I’m praying . We all thank you in advance for your prayers & kind wishes.” You have our prayers, Ang. Good luck!
